Assessment at Stanville is an integral part of teaching and learning. Its purpose is primarily to inform the teacher of a child's progress so that appropriate tasks are planned for future Teaching and Learning.
Individual pupil progress is monitored and tracked closely in core and foundation subjects. We are committed to ensuring each child reaches their full potential. To measure this, a baseline profile is completed within the first half term of each child's entry into the Foundation Stage, and is kept as a reference point in the child's records as they go through the school. A similar process takes place also across the rest of the school when a child joins mid-year.
Formal tests currently take place in Year 2 and Year 6 in line with National SATs testing as well as Year 1 Phonics testing. The results of termly tests in all year groups (1-6) assist us in monitoring each child's progress throughout the school and contribute to overall teacher assessment. In addition to formal tests teacher assessment in all classes is continuous throughout the year.Individual progress and attainment are reported to parents and discussed and agreed with children. These describe an all-round picture of the child's development and inform all parties of the next steps in learning.
